-intellectual, ain't science and uncurious. despite successes of right wing broadcasters, like glenn beck and hannity, and despite the success of populist-ish governors like scott walker and bobby jindal and despite the effectiveness of the tea party in corralling conservatism in a grassroots cause, the movement has been successfully demonized by liberals as plutocratic, corporatist, anti-other and anti-poor. i believe both are unfair characterizations. if politics is perception, then conservatism is failing on both fronts. the good news is the job of revitalizing both the movement's hitch history of intellectualism and every man tradition has two very capable applicants. the bad news is, they will need to work together. rand paul and marco rubio are often pitted against one another competes for influence and authority, at times they seem to encourage this and may, in fact, end up competing in 2016. but their differences now and until then should be exploited in productive ways for the party that addressed those two deficiencies. paul's ayn randian highly intellectualized conservatism is informed by

as a political science professioner writer, on this right, co-hosted the show with me once or twice. he was somebody i called as a quote for pieces. i got to know him really well. he was so encouraging to me. he looked at me and said your future is in tv. you've got to make it work in tv. it was good to hear. i didn't know what it meant. it's not a direct straight line from here to here. the tv thing didn't start until recently. his encouragement stuck with me. unfortunately he passed away a few years ago. he died in the classroom doing what he loved. david is his name. i just had three years in new jersey. it was the funnest time in my life. i'm really excited about this new show. might be great. i hope it's great. might be the biggest disaster sin but we'll find out. there will be a lot of people i hope get to watch but i just wish david could have been one of them. i had a blast the last nine months. >> we're going to miss you. >> for the final time, martin bashir, take it away. >> i'm sorry. who are you? good afternoon, it's wednesday, march 20th. on this first day of spring, the pr
. the journal "science translational medicine" published the findings today. the treatment is experimental and has only been used on five adult patients whose bodies resisted chemotherapy. the treatment genetically alters a patient's own immune cells to fight the cancer. one patient saw all traces of his leukemia disappear within eight days of treatment. and three of the five patients have now been in remission for five to 24 months. general motors announced a recall of 27,000 vehicles because of problems with their automatic transmissions. the recall affects the 2013 models of buick's full-size lacrosse cars and cadillac's s.r.x. crossover s.u.v. g.m. cited a software problem that could cause the transmission to shift to sport mode and increase the risk of a crash, although none have been reported. those are some of the day's major stories. now, back to jeff. >> brown: and we continue our focus on the middle east with a deeper look at the question of chemical weapons and their possible use in syria. i'm joined by leonard spector, deputy director of the monterey institute's center for nonp
need without any surprise fees. ♪ it's not rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >>> keeping them honest. the center for disease control said 1 in 50 children in the u.s. have some degree of autism. it's an attention-grabbing figure. last year, the same government agency, the cdc, put that number much lower at 1 in 88. at first this new number sounds like a huge increase. which led us to dig in and dig deeper and look closer at how the cdc arrived at the new number of 1 in 50. it turns out, it was through a phone survey of parents. the cdc didn't actually evaluate any children. they didn't look at a single medical record or any other documentation. they just called up parents and those parents who responded said ultimately -- came out to be 1 in 50. we're not suggesting these parents lied or misled the cdc, but the question is how accurate was this phone survey? and the cdc is, of course, a serious outfit, not prone to throw around faulty information. what are the facts? we're joined by sanjay gupta. sanjay, a year ago, everybody was shocked. the prevalence of au
, science, technology, the economy, but going with the president of israel and the prime minister to see a high-tech demonstration. one of which was a robot actually serving matzoh. so there were all sorts of demonstrations on medical advances. israel really has exploded with technology and science here and what the president was trying to say to the young people is, this is a model for the region. now make your democracy work by not being an occupying forceful. >> i thought that was one of the most effective parts of the president's speech. to say, take essentially, take all this negative energy and turn this into something positive. that israel is an economic hub. the palestinians are among the most educated populations in the worldful there is great potential here if these two opposing sides would actually work together. that's why he has been stressing economic development as a possibility. >> now a $40 billion a year mutual trade relationship that dennis ross helped nurture along. thank you, dennis, and i should say nbc middle east adviser in chicago, jeffrey goldberg here. we'll be
they said they wanted to give. libraries, exiewrpt labs, science labs, beautiful building. they're being sent to a school that is much, much older, not in good shape, and not really equipped to handle the children with special needs. >> announcer: let me ask you the same question i asked him about whether and to what extent chicago is failing its student today. where do you see the failure and where do you see the cost? >> i mean, i don't understand the-- what we're talking about when we're talking about fail. we have been failing poor and minority children across this country. it's not just chicago. it's everywhere. and the issue is we don't want to have honest conversations about poverty because doing these other things and focusing the conversation somewhere else allows people to not talk about the other issues. so in the poorer parts ofÑi tow, children have not had access to good things, and then all of a sudden, we're starting to see that happen. almost every single school that is on the bubble here, we've seen a lot of resources put in lately. but some, not so much at all. so the
